works fine - just practise - even better than it was before once you get used to it

This is just not true. Repeating it over and over will not make it true. Just having the show info pushed together into a single paragraph instead of nicely laid out in a table like the old interface makes a big difference. Sure that's just cosmetic, but layout really affects how easy it is to extract information from text. Think of how hard it would be to read a book that didn't have paragraphs.

I'm sure the new live music archive is much easier to work with in the back end. But surely they could have made those backend changes without affecting the user interface. Separating the logic from the interface is just good sofware design. If all the functions of the old live music archive are present in the new one, it should be straight forward to make the new interface look and act just like the old one.

i must be missing something. i can still browse by year which was the most important aspect for my own personal use. also finding a show by date is still easy. it is just an extra mouse click or two away. i guess i'm just not sure what the features are that everyone seems to be missing. then again, i never claimed to be the brightest bulb in the chandelier.

i guess not...that'd be Marty Stuart...suggest you do a little research and find out who he is. One of the best damn guitar pickers and songwriters of our era. he played with Bill Monroe when he was 14 on mandolin. Martha Stewart..seriously?

He's 'new' country in my book. Just too pretty for me. I like my country singers ugly. Like Lyle Lovett, there's an ugly man. Although, Lyle's brand of country is a bit soft for me. I like Western Swing and the Bakersfield sound. Buck Owens, Waylon, Derailers, Hank III...

I actually Sorta Like Marty Stewart's Stuff. I this is from someone who doesnt care for Full on Country Music. Much prefer Outlaw Country Like Johnny Cash, Waylon, Willie, Merle and Such. Marty has more of a bluegrass background. Plus I am a sucker for Good Mandolin. Lum Edwards

With all due respect, Marty Stuart is not even close to "new country". He is indeed one of the best at what he does. Anyone who shares the stage with the likes of Peter Rowan,Jerry Douglas,Mark O'Conner etc. is fine with me. Mostly bluegrass but not limited. There is a torrent on bt.etree right now Merle Watson Memorial Bluegrass Fest. Check it out if you like the real thing.
